Nope, it's a timer. I can see the ticks and a red section getting bigger by the second. It looks like a timer to me.

If that really is a timer then does that mean you wake up once it reaches zero? Because if that is the case then the whole level exploration thing has just been shot to hell and this would actually be worse off than the egg clock. At least you could just dodge the clock the previous time around. If you've got a time limit as the kids as well then seriously wtf? :P

As for Gulwing. Lol. It was either that or Gilpo...and the sound of 'Gilpo' sounds waaay too much like a Hentai fentish...so let's leave that one alone. XD;;

ALSO, where have those lion-cages gone? In the old version there was a section where you have to nock him between a few sets of moving lion-cages that look like horse carts. I don't see that section anywhere in the latest videos. o.o?

Oh gee thanks Digi. Now I am going to have hentai nightmares about Gulpo and Gillwing. Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww!

And yes, you are right. It seems they did take the lion cages out. There are some kind of cages there...but not the same and it doesn't look like you can break those. What a bummer. I think the lion cages looked a lot better than some giant pink blocks. Oh well....

--Edit--
Oh god I hope we can explor like old times. I actually sit on a level for 30 min hatching pian eggs. lol

But wait a second.....they DID say there are sections where the kids run around by themselves......so what the hell is this timer all about then?
Unless it simply means that for the NiGHTS sections you've got to get to NiGHTS in a certain amount of time perhaps?

Maybe there are certain missions that require you to be the kid and not NiGHTS? Or they were refering to the "My Dream" thing. I really have no idea. :P Things change though.....

I really think we should wait and find out more about the gameplay modes before worrying about such silly htings. then again I KNOW the people on this site will nitpick every last detail. But perosnally, Im satisfied. This game is bound to have osme htings I dontl ike, even the original did, but it will be a fantastic experience. I can tell that much already.

There was a timer for the kids in the original as well. I don't know exactly how long it takes, but if you avoid the Egg Alarm long enough (by standing on a tree or some such thing) you'll eventually get a Night Over anyway.

Way to go, DiGi. Hentai nightmares confirmed, that's part 3 of the plan, right? Hey, where does it show how many blue chips you've collected, anyways? What you've got to remember about that timer in the corner, is that the egg timer didn't appear immediatly in the origional game. It's probably something to show how long you have until the egg timer, maybe it'll transform into an egg radar when the timer appears. Also, here's a thought. Those birds are always travelling down the mare to right, correct? What happens if NiGHTS flies to the left?

Depending on how they implement gameplay mechanics, the timer might show how much time you have left to get any bonustime. In the original, if you walked around as Claris or Elliot before merging with NiGHTS, the time wasnt counted against you on the clock but it was for the bonus. Perhaps the timer shows this now?

*shrugs* I dunno, it was just a thought. I hope it's not a timer. And that's a good idea, I just hope that's the case.

EDIT: Besides, I just said it looked like a timer, I never said what it was for.

Think about what you have just wrote. Does NiGHTS ever NEED more than just a facelift and some new levels?



NiGHTS? no. But for a full game on a "revolutionary" system, i think there needs to be more... and after reading some more posts (the rescuing of pians and such) there is a lot of evidence they're doing their job. like i said before, i was just in a negative nancy mood... i'm pumped for the game and i have faith it'll be awesome, it's just this little person inside of me wanting to criticize it...

hopefully the team working on it holds NiGHTS in as high regard as us fans do, and with combined hopes and dreams we're all inspiring them to test their limits to make an amazing game even BETTER in a couple months.

I would have to say yeah they do, seeing as it is Sonic team, lead by Iizuka, lead programmer from the original game and the same art designer and music directior from the original. The rest of the guys arent all from the original team but I bet they share the same enthusiasm for NiGHTS.

I remember reading quotes of Naka saying that he would be extra careful making another NiGHTS game because he valued the franchise so much. From what we've seen, the development team seems to be following that philosophy. Sonic Team is being smart enough to expand the game universe little bits at a time instead of reinventing everything all at once – a very strong temptation for imaginative game designers, but an idea that Sonic Team rightly recognizes would prove quite disastrous indeed.

If they keep on flying toward the right, that means 1) the debuggers aren't doing their job, and/or 2) the developers aren't doing their job.

good call. i was worried cuz i had read that Naka wasn't leading anymore, but since someone on the original project is leading, i can rest easy and dream even more wetly about this game :lol:

It still worries me that Yuji Naka isn't working on this game. As quote Jax as we voice chatted on Pokemon, "NiGHTS was Naka's baby!" He protected NiGHTS for as long as he could. Then when he left....oh look a new NiGHTS game. >> Actually they may have been trying to do this new game before Naka left...I am not sure. But the point is...it worries me. Yuji Naka was great. Heck, I think that is pretty evident when you compare the Sonic 2006 next to SatSR.

Also, as for the bird thing, I think they may discourage flying left due to the fact it may take even longer to catchup to the bird if you do that. It may also be really hard and mess up your score. Who know...maybe they will be smart about it and put areas you can't go back to after you exit, and thus making flying left a bad idea. Lets hope they thought of this.

yeah. Naka was quite fond of NiGHTS and i always tied him to the soul of NiGHTS... hopefully Naka had notes on what HAD to be in a future sequel or something for the other team to look at or something... it's kind of like Walt Disney dying and saying that Disneyland was going to be the only Disney park, but after he croaked (then frozen, lol) they build a fuxing place called Disney WORLD. i find that comical... buy hey, it's a nice expansion on the core idea of Disneyland. hopefully NiGHTS will be like that, only.... a few million less tourists, if you know what i'm implying. (FATHEADS!)

I know...Naka was the best, he's the true father of NiGHTS I say. But, the sequel has come a long way and it looks great, I just hope the bugs are fixed...except for the best line ever that I bet no innocent mind will catch unless it's pointed out to them. :(

Too cool! More video goodness! Be sure to thank whoever found this video guys.

Great stuff in there. A-Life is back, and so are the Nightopeans, so huzzah for that. Plus, I couldn't have hoped for a better remake of Spring Valley ever. And finally, all the stuff in it, like the Ideya Capture (if it is still called that), the bird with the key, and the underwater dealio all were awesome. It was pretty annoying though how everyone kept sticking their stupid heads in the way of the camara.

Oh, and I agree with you guys, are the controls really that hard? :(


I haven't seen an ideya capture anywhere. Are you referring to the ideya palace? Is that what that cage thing is? It makes me wonder if it WILL be the same as the original. I hope so. Getting the capture early and going into bonus time was always a great way to kepp beating your high scores.

That music is on FIYAAAAAAH!! I'm lovin' it. It's got NiGHTS written all over it, man. He's nailed the music perfectly. Woohooo! ^____^
The boss music was a bit of a surprise yet really good, too.

Speaking of bosses, someone mentioned that Phuckle now has an actual name. Translated into something like Donbalon or something, though don't qoute me on that. I can't remember for the life of me.

So..now its the fish bosses turn to get a name. Since he reminds us of Gulpo yet his movement patterns seem to represent that of Gilwing we have dubbed the new fish boss GulWing. ...do you see what we did there? ;)

--edit--
Also, has the boss level changed at all? It seems different somehow. o.o?

Yeah it looks as though they've added a mist effect and the backgroung looks deeper somehow... if you get what I mean.

No you heard correctly. I remember it too. That is why I am confused about some people not knowing about it. From what we have heard, it sounds like it will be just like Sonic and The Seceret Rings and have several missions for every level. The bird catching is probaly the normal form of the level.


Oh noes! Sonic and the Secret Rings' structure was awful!

It would work better for NiGHTS since the original did have a "select a level" structure to it. Journey of Dreams does have a hub world if I remember correctly. How do you select the missions is the question.

I like various anime shows, mostly shoujo and maho-shoujo. I also like reading books of fantasy-writers (Andre Norton, Phillip Pullman, Gart Nix etc). I like listening to rock or folk-rock music. I also love various pretty shiny things. I myself write and draw various fan things from time to time. And yes, I also love sleeping, dreaming and being lazy.
Me is late again, but it's never late to squee over new vids... And I'm sorry people, for you are going to hear a lot of squeeling from me...
But ohhhh, you're making me such a happy girl, people... *tears of joy*

First I'd like to join you who complains - watching those videos with those people almost made me yell "What-the-hell, get your dumb heads away from the screen!!!". Those smart people who stands or walks right before camera and ruin all the fun... And why's so much babbling? At the screens you should stare in AWE and SILENCE, people, in AWE and SILENCE.
And I believe NiGHTS himself would yell something like: "Either you hold that darn wiimote properly or pass it to those who can play!"

But nyaaaaah, that's gorgeous... That windmill level looks lovely - btw, I myself don't see it as a remake of the Spring Valley... I think that things like nature scapes are common things to dream about. Level design looks quite great - I love those ponds and waterfalls, and tunnel with roses and gleaming chips looks plain beautiful. I wonder what are those dandelion puffs are for... Random missiles to throw around? Though I think I saw some glowing things coming out of them as you hit 'em...
Also makes me wonder, how would developters explain the choice of elements and symbols? I mean, they've explained the whole rusty-park level of Will, would they also tell us the whole meaning of other levels?
And A-life, weeee... Now I know for sure that Pians and chao are sublings XD
And I began to see that owl as some kind of an Omochao... Hope I'm wrong) Or else owl goes "Hello, I'm Owlchao!" and gamers sends NiGHTS to kick it...

By-the-waaay, about dolphin persona... awww, why not make NiGHTS the mer-maren again?

Will's dreamscape of a rusty lunapark is great, too. And yay for cart-NiGHTS. Though cutscene of Will's nightmare made me think "Pfff, what a girly boy...". And his emotions - I can hardly believe it. Claris and Elliot had stronger facial expressions...

And an overall saying... A Divine Unicorn said that levels miss some dreamlike and imaginary feeling, and I think I would agree. I myself would like to see more abstract and absurd scapes, for dreams are meant to be like that!
But still... sooo excited... And please don't make me jealous saying things about bying those lovely NiGHTS statues... But when you buy, please make one-two tons of pictures for everyone to enjoy...
